Staff from Walking With The Wounded stayed here en masse during our annual Cumbrian Challenge walking event in Grasmere which raises funds to support wounded veterans back into independence. It is a beautiful location and good value for money. The rooms were all clean and the staff helpful. Those over 6ft struggled with the bunks and the reception kindly handed...

This was my first time staying in a YHA property so I didn't really know what to expect and was a little anxious about the whole thing but I needn't have been as I had a really good weekend. I booked a dorm room for two nights and was put into a four bed. On the first night I only...

Good roomy hostel in its own large grounds, two nice lounges in the main house. The self catering kitchen along with a small dining area for self caterers is in another building next to the main house and down a short flight of external steps. Everything seemed clean and tidy including the attractive grounds, with a few items of outside...

We stayed here for two nights, but actually took a tent and camped in the field adjacent to the youth hostel. The location is perfect as it is a short walk into the village of Grasmere, which is a lovely place. When camping at the youth hostel, you get to use the hostel's facilities. With this in mind, we took...
